12" Swoon block that I made several months ago, and a month or two ago I machine quilted it to a piece of scrap batting I had lying around. I lined it with some plain light grey fabric I had leftover from the background of the arrow quilt I made for my grandcousin last fall - but I didn't have quite enough. So I pieced in the last of the green fabric from the outside and a scrap of purple from Elise's quilt.
jelly roll race quilt. I decided to do one huge spiral, and at the beginning it was pretty tough to turn the quilt through the tiny throat space on my machine. You can see in the photo above how tight the space was. I could barely fit my hand in to guide the quilt!

Here's a picture of the finished product:
